Well, this is a nice concept for a baseball list. There are a lot of players who could make your list. I'll rattle off a few names from the era I grew up in, Ken Griffey Jr., Andre Dawson, Ryne Sandberg, Don Mattingly, Jim Edmonds, Carlton Fisk, Omar Vizquel, Mike Schmidt, Keith Hernandez, Andruw Jones, Greg Maddux, Barry Bonds.....

I'll second on Sandberg, Dawson, Maddux, Jones, Hernandez, Griffey, Edmonds, Vizquel. There's Scott Rolen, Jim Kaat. Is Brooks Robinson in there? I don't remember. Ichiro. Red schoenienst. Bill Mazeroski. Bill White. Yogi Berra. That's all I got off the top of my head. I'm sure there are more. Nice list. Except for missing Sandberg. ;-) V3

There are a ton of players you can continue to add to your list....just another suggestion, maybe you can find cards that show the player in all their defensive glory.  There are a lot of great action shot cards out there of some of the best of the best.  A few more names to recommend, Lou Whitaker, Alan Trammell, Thurman Munson, Kenny Lofton.  There are seriously a ton though.

Not that I've seen the guy play, but the "Grey Eagle" Tris Speaker is highly regarded for his defensive prowness.

Agree with niceness of list and most suggestions above. Especially Sandberg, Dawson, and Maddux. Bill White? Bill Mazeroski? Ron Santo? So many more.

You didn't want to try for an extra base off Dwight Evans in his prime.

Yadier Molina

Also, you have Bench in there twice . Not sure if that was intentional.
